Student groups

What are student groups?

University groups are student associations at colleges and universities that deal with specific topics or interests. They offer students the opportunity to get involved outside of their regular studies, to make new contacts and to deepen their skills and knowledge in a particular area.

University groups can exist for many different purposes. For example, political university groups can deal with current politics, cultural university groups can organize events and workshops, or subject-related university groups can offer the opportunity to work together with other students on certain subjects, professional fields, or similar. University groups can offer various activities, such as regular meetings, the organization of excursions, lectures, and much more.

University groups are an important addition to regular studies as they offer students the opportunity to gain practical experience, improve their soft skills and develop personally. They also provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and collaboration with other students, which contributes to an enriching and diverse study time.

Pluralist Economics

Pluralist Economics is a student group that advocates for diversity in
economic thought and methodology. We promote interdisciplinary
approaches and advocate for a more inclusive and diverse economics
curriculum that exposes students to heterodox theories, such as
post-Keynesian, Marxian, feminist, and ecological economics. The group
aims to foster critical thinking, incorporate insights from various
schools of thought, and address real-world economic issues from multiple
perspectives. The Pluralist Economics group is committed to ensuring
that heterodox economics are given a permanent place in the economics
curriculum at the HWR.
